With the bearish signal from 12-day moving average convergence and divergence (MACD) grabbing sellers’ attention, a downside break of near-term rising trendline support, at 72.75, can extend declines to 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of July-August downpour, at 72.37.

On the upside, pair’s successful break of 50-day EMA level, at 73.30 now, could push buyers to confront 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level surrounding 73.90. However, September month high near to 74.50 could restrict the pair’s further upside.
